C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Butcher
 
  The butcher in his killing clothes.
Walt Whitman.    
  1
        Whoe’er has gone thro’ London street,
Has seen a butcher gazing at his meat,
            And how he keeps
            Gloating upon a sheep’s
Of bullock’s personals, as if his own;
            How he admires his halves
            And quarters—and his calves,
As if in truth upon his own legs grown.
Hood.
